Webinos - Secure web operating system application delivery environment


Webinos is an EU-funded project aiming to define and deliver an Open Source Platform and software components for the Future Internet in the form of web runtime extensions, to enable web applications and services to be used and shared consistently and securely over a broad spectrum of converged and connected devices, including mobile, PC, home media (TV) and in-car units. The Webinos project has over twenty partners from across Europe spanning academic institutions, industry research firms, software firms, handset manufacturers and automotive manufacturers.

The goal is the development of a secure application platform that facilitates the creation of application for multiple heterogeneous devices and operating systems, overcomes restrictions implied by proprietary and vendor-specific technologies, and enables rapid creation of more personalized , secure and innovative applications.

The main role MICT will fulfill is the validation and refinement of the existing personas that will be offered to the developers. Personas are archetypical users who help developers to focus on the user’s needs instead of their own.

Duration of the project

The project runs from 01/01/2013 - 31/12/2013.
